The opening sequence of Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of the most memorable in the history of motion pictures. It’s got a rolling boulder, poison darts, subterfuge, crumbling rocks, and even a big snake named Reggie.
There are very few scenes in cinema history that are as cool and unique as the opening sequence from Raiders of the Lost Ark. This, in a movie that is full of iconic scenes. In the 80s, kids everywhere were pretending that they were being chased by a boulder for years.
Raiders of the Lost Ark is still one of my favorite movies of all time, and at the center of that film was the quest for the mysterious lost Ark of the Covenant. Now, you can own your own miniature version of the Ark, intricately crafted using 3D printing technology.
Somehow, somebody rescued this Ark of the Covenent cake from a government warehouse full of relics and now it is time to eat. Okay, so it wasn’t really liberated from the warehouse at the end of the movie, but baked fresh.
I still vividly remember the first time I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark. There’s nothing like a good Karen-Allen-broken-bottle-a-wieldin’-Harrison-Ford-snake-a-fearin’-Nazi-face-a-meltin’-Ark-in-a-government-storage-facility-a-hidin’ romp for a good time. So when I saw these fun Indiana Jones-inspired desk accessories, it put a big smile on my face.
